Rio 2016 - Meet Felipe!

Meet Felipe, the Brazilian tree frog, a popular species found in the warmer forests and jungles of Brazil. A natural leader amongst his army of fellow frogs, Felipe was chosen as a mascot to represent coaches guiding Canada’s Olympic and Paralympic Games athletes in Rio.

Felipe is a passionate supporter of Team Canada. While he himself is often camouflaged and rarely in the spotlight, he recognizes the importance and value of the role a coach plays in developing athletes at every level. Felipe believes a trained, qualified coach enhances the experience of our Canadian athletes.

Felipe’s coach pin salutes the personal investment and commitment each coach makes to their own development, as well as to the athletes they coach.

Buy your coach a Felipe pin from any participating Petro-Canada retail stores leading up to or during the 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games in Rio to say thanks for everything they do! Tweet us a picture of you or your coach wearing their Felipe coach pin using #GoCoachGo for your chance to win a $50 fuel card from Petro-Canada.
